Ralph gave this amazing orchid to Emily 
and I last night for Valentines day.
I woke up this morning to Emily telling me she watered it. I was so upset because it was soaked through and had heard that that is death for orchids. I called a florist and she told me not to worry. That they actually like water. I had a talk with Em about orchids and how they are fragile like babies and that next time we will water her(our orchid together).
There are two flowering shoots on our plant. We named them Ruby and Louise.

Coffee labels

We went to Tader Joe's today to get a few groceries. Every time we visit this store I am amazed at how much more I like it than say Shaws or Stop and shop. The cashiers actually speak to you in a friendly manner. Its so great.  I almost never go to the other grocery stores any more.

This morning

Oh what big eyes you have! :)

Making progress on this piece

Slow morning

Today is one of those days that I can't seem to get motivated to do anything. 
I set up to do some art work but thats as far as I got on that. 
We did finish off the cookies we made. Does that count as an accomplishment? :)
